Full Moons and Kowloons...

Hello Lovelies!

Well, it's been a bit since my last post so let me fill you all in! First, a good friend was in town and we went to a restaurant I've been wanting to try for a long time. If you're ever in Saugus, MA for any reason, stop in and have dinner at Kowloon. It's an enormous Polynesian restaurant in the best 1940's Trader Vic's tradition. The food was great, the menu was overwhelming and there was seating in a catamaran for the love of Pete! The best part was when a car hit a power line outside and the whole restaurant went dark and they started giving out tea lights for the tables. Good times, I loved it.

Oh! And I was interviewed by my wonderful friend over at the Where Eagles Dare blog, go check it out! (And if you haven't seen K's shop yet... go here and take a look; beautiful tattoo-inspired work.) Thanks K!


And not one to rest on my laurels (or rest at all on anything for that matter), I have completed the latest art photo in the Cigar, Creeper & Dark Circus and Sideshow series entitled: Dahlia the Albino. I think she came out swimmingly, don't you? I will be posting the last of my ladies later this week and then it's on to the gentlemen so keep an eye out for that one.


The Stapelia Company finally has a website! Yay! I'm pretty excited about that. One place for all things Stapelia, which will make it easier on you Pets as well. There is a button on the right hand side of the blog that will take you there.


Oh, and have a discovered yet another wonderful Etsy seller for you Kids. Frankenkitty truly sells some nightmare-worthy photos including the two below, as well as some beautiful artistic shots. Plus, she's super nice so stop by and take a gander. She'll be happy you did.


So, I thought I would wrap up with a book suggestion for a change. My Sweetie picked up a copy of Zombie Haiku for me the other day and I didn't think I'd like it because it was so short. (I didn't think it would creep me out enough.) But let me tell you folks... it did. It's sort of a series of haikus that tell a story... about zombies. Eeek! It was good. So go check it out and keep your light on while you're reading it.

Until next time: unpleasant dreams!

velvetwoods: No one was hurt, just a fender bender. Strange that it knocked out ALL the power for such a huge building. It was surreal.

Chrisy: Thank you! And I got that gif from Cathe Holden's blog Just Something I Made, she had 3 and you can borrow them! :)
